by Robert Herrick

GO woo young Charles no more to look
Than but to read this in my book :
How Herrick begs, if that he can-
Not like the muse, to love the man,
Who by the shepherds sung, long since,
The star-led birth of Charles the Prince.

    Long since, i.e., in the “Pastoral upon the Birth of
Prince Charles
” (213), where see Note.
